"Shine Get!" to be removed from U.S. Version of Mario Sunshine

From todays update to the gamers.com impressions feature.

"You may have noticed that today's title doesn't follow our rather clichéd "GET!" naming convention… and there's a reason for that (other than the fact that it's getting seriously tired). It's because "Shine Get!", that loveable and super-popular bit of Engrish flashed when Mario grabs a shine, has been removed from the US version. The rather more humdrum "Shine!" appears instead. In a move that does make sense, though, the name of the island has been changed to Isle Delfino (aside from sounding a lot nicer than "Dolphic Island", the voices all say Isle Delfino anyway)."

I think it sounds better. You guys are being sarcastic, right? At least I hope so. If you weren't, that is sad.

Good. Whoever created the phrase probably knows very little about the English language. I'm glad they're fixing it before it turns into another "All Your Base Are Belong to Us."

Personally I like Shine Get! more. And no, I'm not being sarcastic. I mean.. Shine! .. that's just boring. But Shine Get! now that's exciting.

Am I missing something? Is Shine Get! basically the same as All Your Base Are Belong To Us or does is it supposed to sound like something else?

I was glad to see it go as well. I can do without Engrish in my games.

I didn't think it would stay in, that doesn't mean I'm not sad to see it go. It's like when you have a grandparent with a terminal illness. You know they're gonna die, but it's still sad when they do.

I don't mind being the village idiot at all-- I thought "Shine Get!" would stay in the U.S. version of the game. Regardless if it was good English or not, it was a catchy phrase that obviously caught on internationally. Very sad to see it go...
